Association between Interleukin-23 Receptor R 381 Q Gene Polymorphism and Asthma

The SNP (rs11209026, Arg381Gln, R381Q) in the IL-23 receptor (IL23R) confers protection against multiple inflammatory diseases, representing one of the most significant human genetic polymorphisms in inflammatory diseases. We, therefore, investigated the association between IL-23 R R381Q gene polymorphism and asthma. This case-control study was performed on… CONTINUE READING
